It's October already......Where did the year go?

This is one of the blocks I have made recently. I belong to a quilting group online and this block was made for the example of a swap we are having next year. It is the churn dash using 30's material and muslin. It will be a fun swap.

I haven't had much time to sew lately. I have been busy shuttling the kids around to soccer practice and games. I also go to church two nights a week and a writing group. I didn't think I would be this pooped. Now I am trying to pack during the day too. I did some packing today. 20 days until we close on the house. My stomach is in knots everyday. Thank God I am on meds for anxiety. If not I would literally be a walking panic attack. We are excited to finally be owning our own house. It scares the heck out of me. It is a huge step. Something we have never done before. It is unfamiliar and adds a whole new level of stress. Yikes. Hopefully once we get settled in everything we be ok and I can relax a little.

Say A prayer for my uncle. He is still in Iraq. He is supposed to come home this month. I am praying hard everyday. His family is surely ready to see him again.

God Bless you all.

Lots of prayers for your Uncle - God Bless him for being there right now. *Hugs*

I know how hard it is to find time to sew. That's all I want to do though! I spend so much more time dreaming about things I'll one day make, than actually making things! Lol*

You've been bit by the repro bug haven't you! I love them all, 1800's civil war, 20's + 30's, vintage cabbage rose - I love it all! :) Your churn dash looks great! :)
